1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing Dec 2 2001
By A Customer
Based on the description of this book I expected it to be much more personal or insightful than it turned out to be. I thought it would be somehow more personally touching or revealing than anything else that has been published before. As it happens, this is really just a collection of various words spoken and written by John Paul II through-out his papacy--It's not at all different from several other books I have already seen. And it doesn't seem as if the Pope had anything to do with this publication. I wish I could have said otherwise, but unfortunately this isn't worth adding to your shelf.

1.0 out of 5 stars Where are the Prayers? Dec 11 2001
I, too, am disappointed in this book and will be returning it. I bought it as a gift thinking it was a collection of the Pope's prayers to God. Instead, I have a found a collection of speeches/papers/instructions to Secular Institutes asking them to "Love the Church" and "Challenge the Young." In the last chapter of the book, there were three actual prayers. Perhaps I allowed the book's title to misguide my expectations. The writing is lovely if you are looking for secular instruction, but don't expect to find the Pope's private prayers.

i found the book to be different from other Pope publications. to follow the Pope through out his journey as a great spirtual leader and the head of the vatican. To read his thoughts through out his travels and time as the Popei find to be very interesting and very englightening. i find the lay out of the book to be beautiful...........i'm glad i have it on my shelf and a bought a few for christmas presents.

3.0 out of 5 stars Misleading title Feb. 12 2002
Format:Audio CD
These are not prayers, but speaches.
You'll need to be very spiritually advanced to listen to them.
Valuable CD's under incorrect title.
I bought this based on an newspaper ad by publisher.
